10 Great Songs About Eating

November 17, 2017

Every holiday season has its own hallmarks, the things that you identify with the time to make it complete and recognizable. Valentine’s Day has its ill-advised first dates, Saint Patrick’s day has its ill-advised consumption of Irish Carbombs, Christmas has its ill-advised decision to ever voluntarily listen to Christmas music. Others, like Halloween, are just…

Top 5 Death Metal Albums Marred by Terrible Production

March 27, 2017

The subject header from Albert read: “top 5 idea”. The body read: “The greatest death metal albums marred by terrible production.” He then presents three albums, Reek of PutrefactionThe Red in the Sky is Ours, and Breeding the Spawn. Immediately, I recognized a gold post idea if there ever was one.

For our first instalment of That Tour Was Awesome, we speak with members of Bolt Thrower, Carcass, Morbid Angel, and Napalm Death about the legendary Grindcrusher UK 1989 jaunt.

Ex-Carcass Drummer, Current Electro-Wiz Ken Owen Interviewed

April 12, 2016

We had the chance to interview Mr. Owen for an article in Issue #136 (Feb 2016, Abbath cover), but we had to cut down our man’s responses to fit in the space available.  Now you can read the entire interview, and hearing Owen’s freakish tunes is now only a click away.

Carcass and Noisem: A Love Story

May 8, 2015

In Decibel‘s June issue cover story, we offered several examples of well loved and respected authors of extremity who dig the Noisem sound and overall ethic.  Blake Harrison of Pig Destroyer, Matt Harvey of Exhumed and Gruesome, and Bill Steer of Carcass all sounded off on their enjoyment of the, uh, blossoming band.

Carcass drummer Dan Wilding also had a few things to say about the band, and while we weren’t able to fit them into the article, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t hear about them anyway.  Here now, for your reading pleasure, are Mr. Wilding’s thoughts on Noisem from the time he spent touring alongside them.

Episode DB007 – Carcass

April 30, 2014

Hours before the final date of the third annual Decibel Magazine Tour, your editors sit down with three members of Carcass and special guest Blake Harrison of Pig Destroyer for a predictably contentious and uncomfortable podcast! We never got around to reading our favorite Liverpudlians Waldo the Parrot’s review of Surgical Steel—thank Christ. Featuring:Carcass “Mount…

For Those About to Squeak: October 2013

October 1, 2013

I have a pet hamster. His name is Ozzy. He is adorable but terrified of everything. However, over the course of his cohabitation with me, he’s become acclimated to the sounds of heavy metal, probably due to the fact that I play it for 16 hours a day. I’ve discovered that he actually has quite…

INTERVIEW: Bill Steer of Carcass

September 9, 2013

There are a lot of hooks on Surgical Steel, but that has always been the case with Carcass; no matter how brutal it gets, it’s always hummable. Has that been deliberate?“Well yeah, I’m glad you think that. Yes some of the music is difficult to the untrained listener but we do wanna have hooks; they…

UK grind-swines Purify The Horror release their “Untitled EP” as a free download

August 12, 2013

Three guys in pig masks? While we’d like to think that Purify the Horror were channelling the heist scene from BMX Bandits when they were working on their aesthetic, but it’s probably the whole anonymity thing that they were going for. Apart from the mortal threats issued during said bank job, the “Australian Goonies” doesn’t…

Carcass – “Heartwork”

May 2, 2013

Contrary to popular belief, Carcass’s fourth full-length wasn’t the result of a bunch of product guys, A&R gurus and major label marketing geniuses.

Decibel’s Top 5 Death Metal Logos

April 8, 2013

5. Carcass – Carcass has had a few logos over their storied and infamous career, but none of them evinces the manic, electric quality of the group’s music quite like this iteration. Its angular, slightly italicized letters, the long stems of the two “c”s and “r,” and the near interlocking of the double “s” imparts…

A Beast Conceived: Introducing Howling

February 19, 2013

The most aptly titled release of the year so far is almost certainly Howling’s A Beast Conceived — a hellacious sonic amalgamation of Heartwork, Ride the Lightning, and Tom G. Warrior-style sinister riffage fronted by the restless extreme music paragon Vanessa Nocera and brimming with lyrical homages to cult horror movie classics like The Beast…

STREAMING: General Surgery’s “A Collection of Depravation”

March 28, 2012

It ain’t often we here at the Deciblog get to premiere a 30-track album. That’s like reading a book for fuck’s sake. (I’m currently reading Holy Blood Holy Grail, and who knew the French were so important to history?) Anyway, General Surgery, as you may or may not know, are the first (and best) CarcassClone….

Requiem Metal Podcast: Pinged, Weakened & Chuffed by Hard ‘N Heavy’s Grindcore Special

January 24, 2012

There are game changers and then there are game changers. I wouldn’t say Hard ‘N Heavy’s Grindcore Special Issue was a game changer in the same way Entombed, Paradise Lost, Napalm Deafth (phonetic spelling, natch), Bolt Thrower, Tiamat, and many others were in the dimmest part of the early ’90s, but it, unlike any Xeroxed…

Kings of Comedy: Gentlemans Pistols’ guide to British sitcoms.

July 25, 2011

Avowed rock atavists Gentlemans Pistols aren’t the sort of chaps to limit their appreciation of British pop culture to the pressed rat and warthog of ’60s/’70s classic rock. Catching up with vocalist/guitarist James Atkinson and drummer Stuart Dobbins after they’ve had a post-festival night battering the ale seemed as good a time as any to…
